Former Treasurer: Keep Ohio Red by Maintaining ‘Trump Coalition’

'The whole country club Republican set...look down on the people of Ohio...'

(Breitbart) Josh Mandel, the former Ohio treasurer, told Breitbart News Saturday that the key to keeping Ohio red ahead of the 2022 Senate elections is to maintain the working-class “Trump coalition.”

Mandel spoke to Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle as Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) announced that he would retire at the end of his term.

Boyle noted that the Ohio Senate seat remains a critical part of Republicans’ mission to retake the Senate majority. With a 50-50 split in Congress’s upper chamber, Republicans only need to retake a net one seat to regain the Senate majority. This means that they cannot afford to lose seats such as Portman’s.

Mandel, a self-described “Trump warrior,” said that Republicans need to maintain the “Trump coalition of working-class Americans to win the seat.”…

Mandel could be a potential Republican contender for the Ohio Senate seat in 2022. He said that he has yet to decide if he will run for the Senate.

Mandel explained, “I think the key is keeping the Trump coalition together. I feel very strongly that the Trump coalition is made up of working people, not country club Republicans, and I think the whole country club Republican set, the establishment Republicans, the Harvard elite, they look down on the people of Ohio. As you said, they got it wrong twice.”…Original Source
